Space Pen - U.S. Government
Marked U.S. Government
The original Bullet Space Pen was conceived in July of 1948. Paul Fisher was soon machining a new pen design shaped from solid aluminum. It became our first Fisher ball point pen, the #400 Bullet Pen, and arguably the most popular pen of the twentieth century. This pen is now all brass with a Chrome finish.
Cited as an outstanding example of industrial art, the classic design of the Fisher Bullet Pen has been exhibited for years in the New York Museum of Modern Art. The Bullet's timeless styling has been the topic of many art books and magazine articles. Often imitated but never duplicated, the Fisher Bullet Space Pen continues to be our most popular pen.

I have been using space pens for years and you can not go wrong with the size and weight of these. This pen just slips in your pocket and disappears. The only bad thing when it disappears is that you forget to take it out of your pocket before it goes in the wash. The nice part though is the o ring that keeps it clean and water free. I highly recommend these pens and the price is well worth it!
I fetishize pens. Lately however, I've come to the conclusion that if I'm not carrying a bag or wearing a suitable jacket, I need something compact. I like space pens because of their form factor but most are made of cheap materials, and look really cheap once you've had them a while. They don't do patina well. This looks great, with its matte finish, and it fits nicely in my Hitch & Timber wallet, beside my Swiss Army Knife. Also, when your pen says "U.S. Government" no one will try to make off with it. It travels well (I love fountain pens but they're a pain when you're on an aircraft) and never lets me down. I've owned many space pens, but this one is by far the best. Pro tip: if you hand it to someone to write something, keep the cap. No one forgets to give back a pen without a cap.
I live in the Great Pacific North WET.
I Need Note Taking & I reIy on Space Pens & RITE in the RAIN Paper. I have for Thirty Years.
Space Pens, Never QUIT WRITING, (but they do get Stolen).
I have Three Space Pens, 2 like Bic Click Pens, and this fancy one from
Very nice. Perfect for my skinth solutions pouch. Thanks CountyComm for yet another awesome product
Great pen, wonderfully packaged in a great display box, it would make a nice gift. Keep in mind, the pen feels like aluminum and is correspondingly very lightweight, it's up to you to decide if that's a positive or a negative.
The shipment was quick, about 4 days, and the pen has held up to everything it has proclaimed to be! I use it daily and it seems to work flawlessly.
Love the pen ,writes well anywhere .
All Space Pens are outstanding! Buy one or twelve!
As with every other Fisher Space Pen I own, they ALLWAYS WORK. US Government marking gives it a cool spin. Great purchase!
Great pocket pens.

I can see why Jerry Seinfeld coveted Jack Klompus' space pen. Great pen & "it write upside-down!!!!! & the astronauts used it in space. "
I don't know exactly what they did but this pen has proven more durable than my old one (which now lives on my desk). I keep this and a swiss army knife in a Hitch and Timber wallet wherever I go. Fabulous investment.
One rides in my front pocket 'neath my wallet every day. You don't know it's there until you need to have something with which to write. Then you appreciate what Paul Fisher created. Best EDC writing instrument every produced..
I had an issue version in a parallel universe long ago on another planet far away, but it didn't come back. Having another as a utilitarian accessory and a reminder keeps one focussed on the important things.
I have many Space Pens but its nice to have one marked US Government. Presentation, quality, and ease of use are great and exactly what you expect from Fisher Space Pen.
Expected quality fisher pen in compact platform
